Adobe & RDK — Powering Next Generation In-Home TV Experiences (Part 2)

Adobe has a rich legacy of lead­ing the deliv­ery of Inter­net video (IP video), with Adobe Flash Player pow­er­ing the vast major­ity of desk­top video expe­ri­ences. Today, Adobe Primetime’s IP video lead­er­ship pow­ers numer­ous live and on-demand video expe­ri­ences across iOS and Android devices, such as NBC Sports Live Extra and Comcast’s XFINITY TV Go apps. How­ever, what is less known is that Adobe Prime­time tech­nol­ogy is pre-inte­grated with the next gen­er­a­tion set top boxes includ­ing the Com­cast X1 Plat­form based on the Ref­er­ence Design Kit (RDK).

       

Com­cast has inte­grated Adobe Prime­time inside of its ship­ping set top box imple­men­ta­tion of the RDK Media Frame­work and actively uses Adobe capa­bil­i­ties for full-fea­tured TV expe­ri­ences deliv­ered over the Inter­net. Adobe pro­vides crit­i­cal capa­bil­i­ties that enhance the view­ing expe­ri­ence includ­ing:

  • DRM and con­tent pro­tec­tion

  • Live and Video On Demand play­back

  • Offline play­back

  • HD video play­back

  • Adap­tive bitrate

  • Trick play

  • DVR

  • Alter­nate audio

  • Closed cap­tion­ing

  • Sup­port for SCTE-style dig­i­tal pro­gram inser­tion (DPI) sig­nal­ing

  • Dynamic ad inser­tion with black­out sig­nal­ing

Adobe is proud of the con­tri­bu­tions we’ve made to IP video deliv­ery over the past 12 years and watch­ing the incred­i­ble expe­ri­ences that our cus­tomers offer to push the indus­try for­ward. Adobe’s sup­port for the next gen­er­a­tion set top boxes and the evo­lu­tion of video deliv­ery inno­va­tion is chang­ing how we engage with video in and beyond the liv­ing room.

Video oper­a­tors con­sid­er­ing using the RDK can eas­ily lever­age the core fea­tures of Adobe Prime­time as part of their RDK imple­men­ta­tion. To learn more about RDK, visit the web­site.
